Woman Who Put Gorilla Glue In Her Hair Is Giving $20,000 GoFundMe Donations To Charity

Woman Who Put Gorilla Glue In Her Hair Is Giving $20,000 GoFundMe Donations To Charity

The infamous woman who used Gorilla Glue after she ran out of hairspray is reportedly donating $20k to a foundation for reconstructive surgery.


Tessica Brown has raised over $23k so far through a GoFundMe campaign.

According to her manager, she wants to keep $1k to pay for the emergency assistance and travelling expenses caused by the incident.


According to TMZ, Tessica is doing well now that she has been through a 'miracle hair restoration' performed pro bono by L.A. plastic surgeon Dr Michael Obeng. Dr Obeng is the founder of Restore Foundation who received the $20k from Tessica.

Dubbed 'Gorila Glue Woman', Tessica has had to go to the hospital last week after a month trying to get the Gorilla Glue removed out of her scalp by using coconut and tea tree oil.

Tessica's rise to fame happened after she uploaded a TikTok video showing her applying a white cream that she received from the hospital.

The saga continued as Tessica battled the Gorilla Glue. Tessica, now armed with a cavalry of one friend, uploads another video where she chopped off her ponytail.


In the video, the friend says: "We've been using acetone every day trying to soften it up.

"It kind of feels like it may have softened up a bit, but we're going to use this [Goof Off]. We have some on here already but I'm going to add a little more and then we're just going to cut this whole ponytail off and try to let it breathe a little bit."

The desperate attempts make the audience hopeful as the hair appear more malleable, maybe there is hope? We all bite our nails.


The friend then says: "I was able to get the ponytail off, but it's still not opening it up as you all can see.

"It's still kind of hardened so we're not letting the air in too much, but there's a little opening right there. So she might get a little bit of air out of there but not much because it's still pretty hard."

The saga is being nervously followed by millions of people with the initial video gathering 15 million views so far and the go fund me campaign raising staggering $23,380 out of an initial $1,500 target.

In the initial video, Tessica appears at breaking point saying: "Well, I didn't have any more Göt2b Glued Spray, so I used this: Gorilla Glue spray. Bad, bad, bad idea. My hair, it don't move. You hear what I'm telling you? It. Don't. Move."
